From: Adolescent obesity, joint pain, and hypermobility

  1. Unadjusted 2. Adjusted
  Covariate OR 95% CI OR 95% CI
Hypermobility4* BMI-Z-score 1.12 0.74 -1.72 0.72 0.42- 1.22
Hypermobility4 Obesity 1.23 0.72 – 2.14 0.79 0.39- 1.60
  1. Adjusted for sex, age. Race, Tanner stage, and physical activity.
  2. *Hypermobility4 is the less stringent level of the Beighton score (4/9).
  3. Odds ratios (OR’s) > 1 indicate increased odds of having hypermobility. OR’s <1 indicate a decreased odds of having hypermobility. Results are considered statistically significant if the 95% Confidence interval (CI) does not include 1.
